Deep Purple have offered up an audio preview of their first new album in seven years, due this spring.
“It doesn’t really come from the head,” says bassist Roger Glover. “It comes from everything: instinct, the body, the fingers, the playing, the singing…it’s what feels good. It’s very difficult to define what a Deep Purple song is; it’s whatever we do, actually – we write the rules.”
In a newly-released video, Glover’s thoughts are followed by audio of a partial track from the forthcoming project, which was recorded and mixed the project in Nashville with producer Bob Ezrin.
Don Airey now in the fold with the sad loss of the marvellous John Lord last year.
